P-38s make good sweepers, but not very good CAP aircraft. For a good CAP aircraft you need an aircraft that
can climb good and has good maneuverability. High durability also helps, but the pilots will make the most
difference.

What he said.


Pilot inexperience is a bigger factor in your current mismatch than airframe disparity.

P40s with trained pilots stand up well against at least early model Zeros.


However, you won't rule the skies until the P47 and Corsair arrive.

I shot down 21 zeros in one turn with P-40B's. I lost 4. The pilots made the difference....GP

I was making a response when the server threw me out. Essentially it was what was said above. Train, train, train. Even P-40's will hold up if trained and not badly outnumbered. Not the best, but they can do. Just look at your AVG group.

As for the 'boats' I've not much idea why they won't attack. Sorry.
